16/08-2018 07:00:25: (HIDDN) HIDDN: Financial results for the second quarter of 2018

(Oslo, 16 August 2018) Hiddn Solutions ASA ("Hiddn") recorded revenues of NOK
5.4 million in the second quarter of 2018, an increase of NOK 3.1 million (129%)
from the corresponding quarter last year. Loss before tax was NOK 10.8 million
in the quarter, up from NOK 12.8 million in the same quarter last year. Hiddn's
focus for the second quarter has been to expand the product offering and the
distribution capabilities in Europe and North America. The company is preparing
for increased production as Hiddn aims to enter into an accelerated growth path
and strenghten its position as a leading technology provider in the global
encryption market.

"The second quarter of 2018 was an important quarter for Hiddn. We significantly
strengthened our distribution capabilities through partnerships with ALSO,
Fujitsu, Power and SecureData, expanded our offering with new products and GPDR
-proof product guarentees and optimised the set-up for volume production," says
Carl Espen Wollebekk, CEO of Hiddn Solutions.

Hiddn reported revenues of NOK 5.4 million in the second quarter of 2018, up
from NOK 2.3 million in the corresponding quarter last year. The company
recorded a gross profit of NOK 2.1 million, equalling a gross margin of 39%, up
from a gross profit of NOK 0.2 million in the corresponding quarter last year.
The loss before tax ended at NOK 10.8 million in the second quarter of 2018
resulting from fixed costs and preparations for increased growth, and up from
NOK 12.8 million in the corresponding quarter last year.

"Hiddn is delivering according to our strategy for 2018. All major elements of
the growth strategy are now in place. As a response to the anticipated increase
in demand for Hiddn's products and services, we are preparing for a first
production order of as much as 10,000 units from Swissbit, as well as another
3,000 units through the SecureData/ClevX partnership. An initial order of our
new consumer product, KryptoDisk1, has also been distributed to selected Power
outlets in the Nordics," Wollebekk continues.

These production orders result from the two partnerships entered into during the
second quarter. Through a partnership with SecureData/ClevX, Hiddn will offer a
new product range that introduces services and software solutions on top of
existing hardware products. Hiddn also entered into a letter of intent with
Swissbit AG to customise, optimise and test Hiddn's encryption solutions to
secure quality volume production and develop a future product roadmap. This
partnership is especially important for Hiddn in order to meet demand from the
sales and marketing efforts through Hiddn's distribution partners, such as
Fujitsu and ALSO.

"ALSO is one of Europe's largest distributors of ICT products that is increasing
its focus on data security. Their configuration centre opens for Hiddn's
products to be embedded in PCs, notebooks and tablets from all major brands
- providing an important distribution channel for Hiddn. We are proud to be part
of the exclusive list of vendors, and we look forward to introducing our
products on ALSO's resellers event, Hunt-IT, in September," says Wollebekk and
concludes:

"Hiddn will also be present at Fujitsu Forum in November, aiming at further
strengthening our partnership with Fujitsu Europe and broadening the
introduction of our joint GDPR proof solution. Furthermore, Hiddn will continue
to expand its product offering, enter into OEM- and distribution agreements and
strengthen production and marketing efforts going forward, as we aim to enter
into an accelerated growth path and strengthen our position as a leading
technology provider in the global encryption market".

Hiddn will host an open presentation today, Thursday 16 August 2018 at 08.00
(CEST) at Felix Conference Centre. The presentation will be broadcasted live
